Poetry Friday: Hush, Little Horsie

Happy Poetry Friday! Enjoying Hush, Little Horsie by Jane Yolen and illustrated with the delicate paintings of Ruth Sanderson. Whether on the farm, plain, by the sea, or on the moor, the mother horse is nearby waiting and watching her baby.

Hush, little horsie,
Asleep on the moor.
Your mama is close--
That's what mamas are for.

She'll watch when you play,
And she'll watch when you leap.
And when you are tired,
She'll watch as you sleep.

Best to you as you enjoy poetry with your totz today!
